Sup, guys? A guy from Western MD here (Hagerstown). Mana, I actually went to Otakon and despite it being rather uneventful this year, I had a lot of fun. I save a lot of my tax returns for the crazy Otakon rate and hotel room, etc.
I'll be starting my Junior year of College at a transfer university in Rockville (Universities of Shady Grove, for University of Baltimore) so I'll be closer to DC during the week, so I'm open to any potential events or get togethers if it fits with my current budget and university/work schedule.
